That is what the website says: "[w]e are three friendly and welcoming conservative evangelical churches, committed to hearing God speak through the Bible and prayer." That is great. I am a church going guy and the son of a minister so I like to read that happy positive sorta stuff. I especially like to read that in the context of this news:
Fans of ale will be in for a real treat as St Mary's church in Elsenham has released a celebratory brew for its 900th birthday. The ale is part of a series of events being put on by the church over the next year in a bid to raise awareness about the church and its activities. Assistant minister at St Mary's, Dub Gannon, said: "We were chatting about different ways to celebrate the churches birthday and also to increase awareness of us. Our aim is to reach people in different communities. "I can't remember who it was who suggested the idea, but we all agreed it would be good. "We approached the Saffron Brewery, a micro brewery in Henham and asked them if they would like to get involved. They were very excited about the idea, and came back with the ale.
Who suggested the idea, Rev. Dub? Not you? Perhaps not but someone is keeping notes. There shall be a reckoning.
What a great attitude and greatly confident statement that the congregation of St. Mary's at Elsenham, England does not buy into fear mongering and fadish health finger pointery that is running amok, say, in Denmark over the Carlsberg strike.
